Name, father's name, gender, weight, height, status of height and weight on WHO Z-score
charts, and marks obtained in the test were recorded on a data sheet.
The length, weight, age and mid upper-arm circumference of each child was obtained to calculate z-scores
for weight-for-age (underweight), height-for-age (stunting) and weight-for-height (wasting), as per the WHO Growth Standards .
The effect of GH therapy was evaluated by calculating the difference in Ht Z-score
after 12 months ([DELTA]Ht 0-12) to determine the short-term value and upon reaching final height ([DELTA]Ht 0-FH) for the long-term value.
This finding shows that the cost-reduction channel dominates the signaling value after controlling for observable borrower and loan characteristics, including borrowers' quality measures of Z-score
and credit rating.

A multivariable linear regression model was developed to assess the independent effect of difficulty buying food on BMI z-score
, adjusting for potential confounding variables, which were age, sex, mother's BMI, birthweight, maternal education, immigration status and ethnicity, neighbourhood income, and juice and sweetened beverage intake, included as a potential confounder because of its association with BMI z-score
in previous analyses.
The quality of full length models were predicted by z-score
Model 2 is authors, and has been named All Variables Z-Score
It is calculated using height for age (HAZ) z-scores
and were classified as moderate z-score
(-3 SD) to severe (<-3SD).

The index was log-transformed to provide an approximation of a normal distribution and expressed in quintiles of z-score
, with the highest score classified as "excess adiposity".
